We all want the best options for our children when looking for infant mattresses. Therefore, it’s vital to consider if the product addresses relevant safety, quality, human health, and environmental and social impacts during its lifecycle.

GECA has created a lifecycle ecolabel standard to remove doubt and confusion and make identifying environmentally and socially preferable products easier.

The standard sets requirements that aim to provide a benefit by: 

• demonstrating performance and safety for the Australian market
• avoiding the illegal harvest of natural materials and fibre for raw materials
• reducing the use and subsequent release of environmentally harmful substances to the environment at all stages of the product’s lifecycle
• encouraging recovery, reuse, recycling and responsible disposal of unwanted product and packaging
• reducing the presence and release of substances harmful to human health
• ensuring workers and suppliers through the supply chain can expect fair pay, equal opportunity, and a safe working environment

The scope of this standard is applicable to infant mattresses products, including but not limited to:

• Cot and crib mattresses
• Household cot mattresses
• Mattresses for Bassinets
• Other flat sleeping surfaces

Being an environmentally aware business, we needed a way to ensure, adhere and implement sustainably preferable strategies into our business plan. The team at GECA is co-operative and their guidance ensured that we not only complied with green standards, but exceeded them. The process is credible and well-received in the market place and ensures that we are set apart from the not-so-genuine ‘greenwashing’ companies.
